Orange is the New Black Quotes

When God gives you a swastika, he opens a window. And then you remember, there is no God.


Janae: Black people can't be racist. We have no power.
Black Cindy: I'm gonna have to call bullsh*t on that. I'm sorry, look, we may not be able to act on our racism, like, put people in a ghetto, send them to sh*tty schools...-kill 'em in the back of police vans. But we sure as sh*t can be racist as everybody else, because this is America. Land of the free, home of the racist.
